Black Owned Business Feature: Taupe Coat

I can’t believe we are in June already and Summer is almost officially here. I have plans to make it to the beach this year with my family and just have a great time. Today on the blog is another Black Owned Business Feature with Taupe Coat.

I met the owner of Taupe Coat, Bethany at Fearless Con this year and she was so sweet and down to earth. I enjoyed the conversation and getting to know her. I was excited when she told me that she owned a nail polish company and I wanted to support. I was not disappointed when I tried out her products.

I love that the polishes are vegan and 10 free which means it does not contain the harmful and harsh chemicals normally found in most nail polishes. Over the years I have started to get rid of those polishes that contained those chemicals and now only use polishes that non toxic.

I love the unique shape of the bottles, I thought is was so cute and nothing I have ever seen before. I also love how unique and different the colors are. There is something for everyone if you love bold and brights colors to simply neutral. The formula of this polish is amazing. It is not too thick and so easy to use. You can get away with one coat with some of the colors.

Taupe Coat also has an amazing non toxic polish remover! It blew my mind the first time I used it (I have a highlight on my IG stories using it, naturalle_drea). I didn’t realize how much regular acetone remover was damaging my nails until I used the succulent remover. It is a plant based formula that helps to hydrate and nourish your cuticles and nails.

I highly recommend checking out and supporting Taupe Coat. You can check them out here:

So that is it for another Black Owned Business Feature. What are some of your favorite nail polishes? Comment below and let me know. See you guys tomorrow!

Melanin HairCare Demo

I have been waiting to use these products lol! If you have been living under a rock, Whitney aka Naptural85 released Melanin HairCare earlier this year! Her YouTube videos helped me when I started on my natural hair journey and I was so excited for her! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these products lol!

She released a Twist Elongating Style Cream and Multi Use Pure Oil Blend along with other brand merchandise. I knew before I tried these products out that they were going to be amazing but watch the demo to hear my actual thoughts lol!

So that is it on the Melanin HairCare demo. Have you picked up any of the products yet? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know! If you are a mom reading this, hope you enjoy your Mother’s Day and see you guys Wednesday!

Shwaxx Hydro Butter Shampoo and Conditioner Demo/Review

You know, I really love doing these hair demos! I love trying out new products to see how they work with my hair and I just love hair products in general lol (well I am a hair product junkie).

I was excited when I saw Shwaxx was coming out with shampoo and conditioner! I already love their styling products and couldn’t wait to try them out! I only shampoo and condition my hair once a month and co-wash the other times during the month. I did wash my hair every week and now stretching it to washing my hair every other week. It has been working so far but I may go back to every week, not sure yet.

Hope you enjoy the hair demo and review!

So that is it for the Shwaxx review. I am really loving this company and their products so far, looking forward to what they may come out with next (maybe a co-wash lol). Have you tried anything by Shwaxx before? What products do you use to shampoo and condition your hair? Comment below and let me know. I will have another bonus post up tomorrow so see you guys Friday!

Black Owned Business Feature: Char’s Creations

Can you believe it is May already? It will be Summer before we know it! I am just hoping we get more of that Spring weather lol. Today is another Black Owned Business Feature with Char’s Creations!

I first met the creator of Char’s Creations at the Network To Networth event as one of the vendors. I was drawn to her table by this wonderful scent and it was so hard to narrow down what I wanted because everything smelled so good! I love products that contain all natural ingredients and have unique scents that I won’t find anywhere else.

I love that most of the products I have are multi use products. I can use them for my body and hair. I love when companies have these products that you don’t have a limit on how they can used. Char’s Creations has just about everything from hair, skin, body, feminine and even stuff for men. I’ll give a short review on each product pictured above.

Shea Hair and Body Butter Souffle

Can I just say the scent Sky is just everything?? It smells sooo good and I just love it lol. This body butter souffle has a fluffy, whipped texture and is very lightweight. It absorbs right into the skin and keeps you moisturized all day. I haven’t tried this in my hair yet because I’m obsessed with the scent on my skin lol.

Hair, Body, Locs and Massaging Oil

I love how many different ways you can use this oil. I have used this as a hot oil treatment in my hair and to moisturize my skin. Again the scent of this oil is so unique and I just love it. When I used this as a hot oil treatment, it really helped soften my hair and made it easier to wash. I was blown away when I used this oil on my body. You know how some oils will sit on your skin or have that greasy feeling and it get all over your clothes, well this oil does not do that at all. It absorbs right into your skin and doesn’t feel greasy or get everywhere. It leaves your skin feeling super soft and moisturized.

Liquid Black Soap with Shea Butter

This is another multi use product that I can wash my hair, face and or body with. I have been mainly using this on my body and it has been amazing. My skin doesn’t feel dry after using it and my skin has been looking more radiant and healthy.

I am just going to say pick up everything I mentioned and head over to check out what else Char’s Creation has

What are some of your favorite skin or body care items? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday!
